The statistic that really stood out was Paulo winning 79% of his first serve points, while Rochus only won 39% of his. Great win!

What amazed me was that he had 3 BPs against him in the match and he saved all of them with aces. :eek:

It is good to see a player follow an upset with a couple of wins. It always amazes me when a player upsets a top seed only to meekly lose in the next round.

Has anybody else noticed that since I declared him hawt, Paul Henri has not lost a match? That's right folks, I'm a good omen.

His serve has always been inconsistently good, especially the serve out wide. The trouble has been the consistency and keeping the 1st serve % up. Hopefully, the consistency won't go back down.

Sheesh, Ollie...that score is harsh, little man. What a beating :awww:
Congrats to Paulo, though.

Malisse is not doing fantastically either...my Belgian men are getting crushed. :sad:

Mathieu was SCARY out there today. I watched this match live and he just ripped everything for winners :scared:. It made me wonder though, as to why the HELL this guy isn't ranked inside the top 30/20. I checked his bio on the sheet they hand out and he's pretty old and has acomplished NOTHING :o. Allez PHM though, keep it up please!

23 is hardly old! and he has been ranked 32! he had a very bad time after the davis cup final that scarred him for a long time but he is still young he's not OLD by any means yes he's been on the tour since 1999 but he's only 23, (thats 1 year older than andy who everyone says is young) and got plenty of time to get his ranking back up and i suspect this week will be just the boost he needs, and last time i checked 3 tour titles is not NOTHING! :rolleyes:

I wouldn't say that he's accomplished nothing either, but I assume Naldo just meant that relative to Paulo's talent. It's a pity he is not very mentally tough, but we can always hope for a turn around.

PHM seems to be on fire! I wish I had seen that match. Seems more and more like a Nadal-PHM semi-final match.

Naldo, you didn't see him in the fall of 2002 before the tragic DC final. He ripped Marat apart in Moscow then and I love his game ever since and know what he's capable of! :hearts: He won 2 titles back then (Moscow & Lyon). You can't call him old and say he has acomplished nothing, simply there have been injuries and he's the master choker while finishing the matches as has been discussed here.

I so hope he can get everything together FINALLY and have some great results again. ALLES PAULO!!!!!!!! :bounce: :bigclap:

Yes, Paulo and PHM are official nicknames. For PHM, pronounce Pé (Payh) - Ashe - M. Droopy could be one too because of the look he always sports...:lol:

Thanks for that. Yes I did mean Mathieu has accomplished "nothing" relative to what PHM is capable of. 23 is sort of "old" i find, especially with the new crop of young players who are always coming onto the scene at around the ages of 17-18. One would think that just by watching him play this week and then knowing his age and finding out he only won 3 titles and got to 32 on the computer ranking that he's been underachieving. Maybe the use of the word "old" was a bit too much also, but 23 is hardly young these days.;) I do really hope he starts to get back into the thick of things because he's capable of so much (not grand slams, TMS titles I don't think, but he's surely capable of a whole lot more that what he's done so far).

Yeah but he had quite a few bad injuries just when he started peaking
